OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendNuke ControlCards

The Free Land of Grue is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.106 billion Grueans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grueville. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gruean economy, worth 243 trillion Grue Dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 115,563 Grue Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists are pillars of society, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Grueville to enjoy their national art, Grueville Preparatory School for the Exceedingly Wealthy's basketball team is having a few off-years, and a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grue's national animal is the Manatee, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Grue is ranked 117,294th in the world and 5,222nd in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 451.16 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
